โ€œThat was the first rule of demonology: make certain the demonโ€™s incentives align with your own.โ€

๐ŸŒŸ I have been in the mood for a Sanderson story lately for an unknown reason! I didn’t want to continue the second Mistborn trilogy yet so I was going to discover his other works as Elantris and Warbreaker. When I saw this Gift from Brandon, I thought it was a sign, it was also the perfect time to read this. This is a short story so that was also a good thing because his other books are huge.

๐ŸŒŸ The first thing I touched upon starting this is unsurprisingly the World building which Brandon is a master of. I have never played Magic: The Gathering but you don’t need to before going into this. I believe there will be things that I missed but it was a good experience nonetheless.

๐ŸŒŸ The writing is good but I know this is not Sanderson at his best and I guess authors as him are better in writing longer stories because it shows their potential and intellectual potential.

๐ŸŒŸ The plot was very expected for me from the first few pages and I don’t know if this is due to reading many Sanderson books or if it was obvious, guess I will never know!

๐ŸŒŸ Summary: I don’t have much to say about this book, guess because of its short length. It had an OK writing, good pacing but was kind of expect able. This is definitely not a new favorite but it does not change the fact that Sanderson is still a fav author of mine! I ended up giving it 3 out of 5 stars!

๐ŸŒŸ Prescription: For fans of Magic: The Gathering game and for those who wants to discover Sanderson style by reading something light.

  1. I agree! This is definitely not Sanderson’s best, but he also has other novellas that exhibits more of his prowess. My favorite books of his are actually his novellas ๐Ÿ˜‚ You should check out Snapshot and The Emperor’s Soul!
